Daily Sketch Reprise: Coming Back to Bed?

I hadn’t made the bed yet, perhaps Jelly Bean and Giuseppe thought I’d join them to be their favorite warm body pillow. They certainly looked inviting, though I ended up making the bed as they settled in for a serious afternoon nap. Finishing my sketch was better than a nap.

I began this in my set of gray pastels, and what appears black is actually one of the darker grays. I’d intended to keep it in gray but instinctively/accidentally reached for my pastel pencils for the shading. Guess I’m accustomed to using them, but I want to get back to the gray set again as I had used them in “A Dozen Shades of Gray”.

    • Thanks, Chris–and it was truly a temptation not to climb back in with them!
